Secret of Joy and Happiness

2006-07-13 23:03

  It is 8.00pm, mother asked Neetu to go to bed. Neetu went straight to his granny's room, for him it was a story time. Granny took Neetu in her cozy warm bed and asked him that 'what he wants', with a smile on her face. 'Its story time Granny' said Neetu. And she started with a small story:

  There was a poor widow, named Radha. Every day before starting her work at the Spin-wheel, she said prayers devoutly. Neetu said to Granny, like papa, when he leaves for his office he says prayers and like me when I leave for my school. Yes, said Granny with a broad smile. Now listen, carefully all stories teach us some thing useful. One day she read her prayer which exhorted the work of mercy and she took it to heart.

  “My good God,” she exclaimed, “how can I do good to others? I have nothing but my spin-wheel, which earns hardly my daily bread. Winters are fast approaching and the cold here in room freezes my fingers that I can hardly spin. I have not paid my rent and I have to beg myself.”

  She thought still there is something she can do. She remembered then that a friend of hers was very sick in bed. “I'll visit her today,” she said to herself. “I can spin in her house and I shall certainly have chance of giving her some comfort.” She took two apples from the cupboard - two apples, which were given to her - and went on her way. When her sick friend saw her, she was overcome with joy. “My dear Radha,” she said, “I have recently inherited a small fortune. Would you like to stay here to nurse me? You would save the money that you pay in rent and with your spinning and my small inheritance, we could live without any worries.”

  Radha accepted the offer very willingly and that same day she moved to her friends house where, for the first time after so long she was able to spend a restful night with no worries.

  Can I speak now Granny I could not understand what this story teaches us as you say all stories teach us something?

  Yes, I tell you the teaching [ Moral ]:“If you wish to learn the secret of joy and happiness, just give to the less fortunate some food or alms or dress.”Like you give food to the beggars sitting outside temple.

  Yes dear, now go to your bed and sleep. Good night! Granny. Good night! Neetu.
